Skyline Wall 8/18

Post by derekcs » Sat Aug 18, 2018 10:28 pm

Got out to Skyline Wall for the first time ever today. Super colorful. Covered in sea cucumbers colored red, orange, and black. Lots of little starfish, some sunflower stars. Baby ling cod. Saw a candy stripe shrimp (hi Jess). Soooo many buffalo sculpin, including one with brilliant yellow coloring with orange/pink diamond markings. Several red Irish lords. Other divers saw 3 Puget Sound king crabs.

I know it's one of those sites you have to time just right, but the current was barely noticeable today.

Really enjoyed it. Definitely worth the drive. Didn't even have to go on a boat!

Great trip report and photos! Glad you found some candies also. I got skunked last time I was out there. It's such a rewarding shore dive when you get the tides and your timing right :supz:
